May I conclude that this keyword has low competition?

    I'm quite new in competition research and niche research. And I'm sure I can find plenty more keywords, so I don't mind giving this one public.
    May I conclude about the keywords "oster kitchen center"
    1. That it's a buying keyword
    2. That with 3600 searches/month it's a profitable keyword
    3. That the competition is very low (check the top rankings)

    So that if I make a good site for this, and do the optimization/linkbuilding, it would be a good target keyword? (aside from there being more profitable options in other keywords)

    It has [880] per month in the USA according to G

    It also has a brand name in the keyword, which means you are subject to the copyright holder's discretion. AKA: If/when your site makes it to the top, Oster LLC can say "Hey Google there's an infringement on my company's trademark, take it down"

    And down you go.

    Yeah I'd stay away from that one. Try a low comp. LSI.

    Good luck!

    What are you using for keyword research? I'd use exact numbers to get the real number of searches which is 880 as said already.

    Lower than the competition the keyword had? And by LSI you mean a brandless keyword, more topic oriented than productname?

    First off it's a brand name. BAD
    Second its CPC is .34 cents BAD
    Low Search Volume BAD (want 1300 +)
    A lot of sites Optimized for the Keyword BAD

    Kind of a perfect example of a BAD keyword. I looked at the top ten. Seems they are ALL optimized for it...... Not sure where you get the low competition stuff from.

    Make sure you check the EXACT monthly searches ;) Global is 4,400 which is prob what you were looking at.

    Pretty sure by LSI he means 'latent semantic indexing', which pretty much just means that you should have phrasing in your article related to your niche and keyword.
